According to the good folks over at TMZ, Dr. Dre says that he hasn’t received a check from Death Row since he left as a producer and artist in ’96. Now that Suge Knight is out the picture, Dre can sue the new Death Row Records and get the money that he deserves. Here’s more of what TMZ had to say:
Why you ask would the good Dr. wait so long? We’re guessing there’s a fear factor that has evaporated since Suge Knight is out of the picture. Dre filed the federal lawsuit against WIDEawake Death Row — which was created after Death Row filed for bankruptcy last year. Dre says the new Death Row has been making lots of money by selling digital copies of “Chronic,” “Chronic Re-Lit” and his greatest hits album without permission.
